    I have been trying since yesterday to access the forums via Tapatalk but I keep getting a "failed to connect, check with admin" message. I have tried on my laptop and it seems to work, albeit really slow.

    The forum is very slow for me right now too. I'll try to notify @arn

    Extremely slow access here in Singapore. I accidentally posted a reply three times in another thread…

    Only seeing this issue here in the forums, and not at the main pages.

    It was extraordinarily slow - as in, snail pace, excruciatingly slow, with pages taking forever to load - and hanging, forever, suspended, before not quite opening; it seems to have cleared up, for now, though.

    Agreed. It is fine now, but couldn't access them at all for a few hours earlier this morning.

    I experienced the same delay when browsing MacRumors - seems to have stabilised now though.

    The way you write is very poetic and descriptive - I like it.

    What's up guys? Extreme slow on browser and TapaTalk. See screen above, very strange behaviour, avatars broken.

    Good luck admins!

    Cheers

    Yes I open 60+ or so tabs in Chrome, I like to use an app to its full capacity and works fluent on my cMP with a 120Mb/s internet connection.

    I'm the more lazy guy! ;-)

    Cheers

    Indeed, while we're seeing issues with avatars not rendering, its not as bad as this morning when we were unable to interact with the site.

    Not all of them, I see some folks, others it seems for me are broken. My own Tar has been broken up until a minute ago.

    That's probably due to your browser cache. Right-click > Open Image in New Tab, reload it, and you should see a 404 page.

    Im guessing it's because my avatar is cached.

    Seems image links (attachments) are broken too? Using FireFox 39.0.

    Avatars showing up as gray on mobile Safari, but the speed is back up. I won't be able to check desktop performance until my MagSafe charger arrives.
